I wish this was available for more devices: MobileSRC's GScroll adds a whole bunch of functions to the capacitive touch panel of the HTC Touch Diamond and Touch Pro (plus the AT&T Fuze), including:
Swiping to scroll
Launching applications with gestures
Tap & Tilt, utilizing the built-in accelrometer for scrolling and panning
Per process customization
GScroll 2.0 is available for $4.99 for registered users of GScroll 1.x, and is on offer for $6.99 for a limited time through our affiliate link. A free trial is available for those who want to try it out first.

This is an unboxing and first impressions video of the HTC Touch Pro. This devices was given to me on loan by Expansys, and it currently (Nov 2008) retails for $799 USD. The HTC Touch pro is an evolution from the HTC TyTn, AT&T Tilt, etc. It packs a lot of functionality into a package that feels surprisingly good in your hand.
The HTC Touch Pro uses a Qualcomm MSM7201A CPU at 528 MHz, runs Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, and has 512 MB of storage ROM and 288 MB of system RAM. It is 102mm tall, 51mm wide, and 18.05mm thick. It weighs 165 grams with its 1340 mAh battery. It has a 2.8 inch VGA screen, GPS, Bluetooth 2.0, 802.11 b/g, and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It's a quad-band GSM phone (850/900/1800/1900 MHz), and this model is set up for Europe/Asia 3G with 900/2100 MHz band coverage for HSPD/WCDMA for up to 2 mbps upstream and 7.2 mbps downstream. The main camera is a 3.2 megapixel camera with auto-focus and flash, and there's a front-facing VGA camera for video calling. It also has a microSDHC card slot and supports high-capacity cards, which are currently up to 16 GB in size.
